Today is the day to make a difference in someone’s life. Yes, it has been said over and over in more ways than one to be kind, speak life, pray for those around you and so on and on. The ocean could be filled by the messages that have been taught and preached on how to treat others. They’re all around us noticing our actions, listening to our words, our tones and our countenances. You could be a lifeline for the lady in the grocery aisle or the man bagging your groceries. So, having said that, Is there a doctor in the house?
What would happen if just once we could get on the same page with the word that we study daily or what is preached weekly and get busy holding up our neighbor’s hands until something happens? You know, like when Aaron held up Moses’ hands after growing tired during the battle. The battle was over if Moses’ hands came down. Aaron and Hur were the doctors for Moses that day and literally for all the people. Again, is there a doctor in the house? (Exodus 17:11-13).
Who will be nourishment for the hungry, water to the thirsty, a counselor for the emotional, a good listener, a builder for the homeless, a healer for the sick, faithful to a spouse, rehab for the addictive, parents to the fatherless and motherless, a voice for the voiceless, protection for the unsecured, to name a few? As Diana Ross sings, “Reach out and touch somebody’s hand, make this world a better place if you can.” It may be a smile instead of a touch, or a card in the mail, although we have the technology, mail is somewhat more personal. We have the power to set the stage for kindness or evil to take place wherever we are. It is a mindset people, a sweet fragrance that we have access to just for the asking. Be that sweet aroma of Christ. (2Cor. 2:15) Time is short my friend. Is there a doctor in the house? jramey
